    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A U.S. aircraft carrier ordered by the White House to rapidly deploy to the Mideast over a perceived threat from Iran has transited the Strait of Hormuz for the first time since its deployment.

    The U.S. Navy says the carrier Abraham Lincoln transited the strait on Tuesday, making its way to the Persian Gulf. The carrier left Norfolk, Virginia, in April and was diverted to the Middle East in May, but it had remained in the Arabian Sea, avoiding passage through the strait that borders Iran.

    American aircraft carriers have for decades sailed through the international oil shipping route in what the U.S. describes as “defensive” operations aimed at keeping the strait open.

    The Trump administration deployed the Lincoln to the Persian Gulf amid a spike in tensions with Iran.

    Actually this was not part of their original scheduled deployment. It just got there two weeks ago.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A U.S. aircraft carrier ordered by the White House to rapidly deploy to the Mideast over a perceived threat from Iran has transited the Strait of Hormuz for the first time since its deployment.

    The U.S. Navy says the carrier Abraham Lincoln transited the strait on Tuesday, making its way to the Persian Gulf. The carrier left Norfolk, Virginia, in April and was diverted to the Middle East in May, but it had remained in the Arabian Sea, avoiding passage through the strait that borders Iran.
    It had been in the Arabian Sea for a while but only just recently entered the Persian Gulf.

    The Trump administration deployed the Lincoln to the Persian Gulf amid a spike in tensions with Iran.

    https://www.stripes.com/news/uss-abr...n-sea-1.608693

    Lincoln was on a deployment from Naval Station Norfolk, Va., earlier this year when it was ordered ahead of schedule to the Arabian Sea in response to what then-National Security Adviser John Bolton referred to as “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from Iran.
    The USS Truman will eventually relieve the Lincoln.
